From the Etschbrücke in Glurns (908 m) start along the town wall in the direction of the campsite. Turn left here and cross the Etschbrücke to the road leading into the Münstertal. Above the state road along the Unterwaal to the second car park (940 m), from where you can climb directly to the Waal. Now follow the signs for the Waalweg (Waal Trail) on the marked serpentine path through the forest up to the Waal in about 10 minutes; now always on the Waalweg (Waal Trail), which cannot be missed and has been made safe and easy to walk on in recent years, partly on the mächtigen dam, partly on well-built footbridges west-west to the Waalfassung, on the Awazassweg (M. 8, signpost) to Rifair (1096 m) and up to Taufers im Münstertal (1232 m; from Glurns 3:00 hrs.); from there by bus or other means of transport back to Glurns.
